Tie for the lead of the PGA after 36 holes of play

Hideki Matsuyama barely missed a birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have given him sole possession of the lead at the PGA Championship.

Instead, Matsuyama will have to settle for a share of the second-round lead at 8 under with Kevin Kisner after shooting 64 on Friday — the lowest round of the tournament so far.

Matsuyama had a bogey-free round that including seven birdies, five on the final seven holes.

Two of those birdies came after he was forced off the course due to a 1 hour, 43 minute rain delay.

Matsuyama won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational last week after shooting a final-round 61.

Ryan Fox is making the most of his first professional tournament on American soil.

The New Zealander posted the lowest round so far at the PGA Tournament earlier today when he shot 5 under 66.

Fox is tied for 10th place at 1 under at the midway point of the tournament.

Fox, 30, joined the European Tour in 2016 and has two top 10 finishes this year but no wins.

He's never been in contention for a major so he's not putting any pressure on himself.

He said he's playing like a guy who has nothing to lose.
